9 years ago, I ran my very first marathon in Columbus. I finished in 3:32:59. In 2010, I had plantar fasciitis and ended up with a 3:25:20, . Then in 2011, I hit my all time PR of 2:44:47 at @cbusmarathon which has remained a PR to this day. I began pacing marathons and racing ultramarathons. I even ran 2 - 100 milers in the summer. It was really fun but I was still feeling empty. I had the time of my life when I was running my fastest road marathons. So, last year, I decided to begin marathon training again. This year I have run 6 sub 3 hour marathons with my first sub 2:50 marathon since Columbus 2011 only 2 weeks ago. I have never rang a PR gong but I am determined to do it one of these days. The weather was nearly 70° yesterday and I ended up struggling for a 2:57:04 finish. Columbus is currently my first and last marathon. I'll be pacing NYC marathon in just a couple of weeks. Not sure when I'll race another one just yet but PR gong, I am coming for you!! blast!!! 🏃💪🏃😊🏃💪🏃😊

Pace: 6:44

Female: 1st

It was so fun to run a new distance. I don’t train or race 5ks, because I’m not very fast at shorter distances, so I tend to avoid them! I did this race as a training run and my last speed work before the Ventura Marathon, this Sunday! I know I should incorporate more 5 and 10k’s in my training 🙈, definitely going to be a New Years resolution! .
Today’s workout:
5 easy Miles @ 8:25 Pace!

RSD 1,055: got some #motherrunning in to kick off the week. When @anissatherunner texted this morning and said it was raining through our run, I rolled over and got some extra 😴😴😴 and resigned myself to an after-work run. I didn't think Peanut would want to come along, but it turns out that someone wanted some extra mommy time AND to hang out with her gym friends. So, an easy 5K kicked off the week. I hope it's a sign of some happy runs to come.

Sábado, antes da maratona recebi a ligação do coach...
“Fica tranquilo...não se assusta com o que você tiver girando, vai estar confortável... eu tenho um número aqui que você vai fazer, mas não vou te falar pra você não se assustar, vai lá e arrebenta”
Engraçado que eu tinha o mesmo número na cabeça 2:55

Valeu @rogerioramosdossantos

My afternoon workout crew. Hayley is warming up to being on the floor by herself. Rylee is obsessed with putting only a skirt on (shirts are battles). Total Body Chisel with 10 minute Chisel Abs - with some minor interruptions. No matter how long it takes never miss a Monday 💪🏻

When Sundays feel longer then Mondays, you know you're far along in marathon training. Have a great week everybody! #NeverMissAMonday

Amidst my multiple other posts from the past year, this one just blends right in. Just another 3 mile run. 7:16 average, good pace, short run, the basics. What's behind the #run means so much more. It's FINALLY a crisp & beautiful 60-70° in New Orleans and I felt GREAT. I just wanted to run. Run at a good pace and feel like I was #running at that good pace. Today, the paces I was running felt like the paces I was running. It took the right amount of effort and I felt light. I know this is one run and tomorrow can change, but tonight I'm taking in these 3 miles. I'm taking it as a step back in the right direction and using it to fuel my training for #rocknroll #marathon in March. I've got time and I'm taking everything one day at a time. It's GOOOOOD to be back. #lifeisgood #runhard #liveeasy #runNOLA #beatyesterday #runbecauseyoucan #running4thosewhocant

Today I ran to the post office... literally. I had no ankle pain, but I didn't want to chance it further so I did a wonderful 45 minute hip hop spin class from @onepeloton and it was fantastic!

~~~Race Reflections~~~
.
.
I have purposely not written a race recap for my last marathon. It’s taken me 2 weeks to make my peace with my finish time and injury. I was more than prepared for this race. I’ve never trained so hard in my life. I wanted to PR so bad I could taste it. So bad in fact that I made the decision on race day to not hydrate as much as I normally do so I wouldn’t have to stop to use the port a potty 🙄 #disastrousidea 😒 I ran with my hydration bottles that are approximately 8 oz each. In each bottle was my electrolyte drink I had been training with. At the END of the marathon both bottles were still have full 🤦🏾‍♀️ I stopped at each aid station for one sip of water but that was it. Couple that with the heat, sun, plus forgetting to take Shot Blocks at mile 22, and it doesn’t take a genius to see why I hit the wall of all walls at mile 24. I had to stop to walk 3 times the last HALF MILE of the race. I was so tired, exhausted and defeated that I couldn’t even look at my parents to smile running into the finish. To say I was dehydrated would be a gross understatement. And all so I wouldn’t have to use the bathroom mid race 🙄 With the cramping, walking and brick legs, my PR was blown. The first year I ran this race I was just grateful to finish. I was so proud of my body for carrying me through. Year two I stayed true to my race plan and I hit my PR. This year I was never so miserable at a finish line. I couldn’t even eat the recovery food and could barely keep down liquids. Never again will I forsake my hydration! If this race taught me anything it is to stick with what you did throughout your training! Race day is not the day to change your plan 😒 Lesson learned. I will be back for that marathon PR. This time smarter, hydrated and with a huge finish line grin!
